"The Real Deal"
Agreed, but some handguns don't lend themselves to easy red dot or scope attachment ...I'm up to Tri-focals now .
Thicker front sight and wider rear notch helps a good bit.
The real answer is a Red Dot sight or scope .
I had stopped shooting handguns because I could no longer "see" the sights. At a gun show I picked up a Ruger MKII with a Millet SP-1 Red Dot mounted on it ....
Oh my word , that red dot let me shoot and actually hit the target again...
It was a Revelation to me .
Since I don't shoot at extended ranges the red dot with a 3 moa does the trick for me .
I dread the day my eye doc uses the C word ... cataracts are a pain but somewhat a simple fix ... I'm just hoping that my fairly inexpensive experiment will help ...Any pharmacy has a display full of reading glasses that you can try out. I once bought a few pairs so I could try them at home and return those I didn't want.
Once our eyes age our vision becomes a roller coaster of change. Some get cataracts that change everything, then they operate and slip in lenses that change everything, then your eyes still change so the lenses aren't perfect a few years down the road.
You have to break distances into reading, less than arm's length, from 3 feet to 20 or so and from there to infinity.
I've got a "distance" lens in my right (master) eye and a "midrange" lens in the other. I can shoot pistols well enough; without glasses, the front sight is a little blurry, the rear sight is fuzzier but both are clear enough that I can line them up successfully. Thankfully, the target is sharp at pistol ranges.
But I think a red dot is really the best solution. I put one on my 22/45 and am buying a Glock G40 MOS for hunting hogs.
I've heard that hogs are showing up in SE Ohio but not that anyone is consistently killing any.now let's talk pig hunting ... that's on my bucket list....
The issues you speak of are the same issues we have here in Ohio for deer. The public hunting areas are over hunted and trying to get permission to hunt private property is like pulling teeth, possible but not easy. Yes there are pigs down in the southeast area of the state with no limit and no closed season as I recall. I don't think the quantity is high and having the time and place to scout is rough since i live a good 3-4 hours away. I would love to hunt Texas pigs but yes the $$$$$ to have an outfitter guide me is a tough one as well.I've heard that hogs are showing up in SE Ohio but not that anyone is consistently killing any.
I've not hunted hogs yet even though I built a 6.5 Grendel AR just for that purpose.
There is not any quantity of hogs here in NM. Some are living in the river valley in the SE corner of the state but are hard to get to without off-road equipment (that I don't own).
I'm next to Texas and their millions of hogs but hunting has become big business and hunting ranches charge hundreds of $$$ a day.
Some landowners appreciate hunters killing hogs but naturally only allow those they know and trust.
There are public hunting areas but you need time and equipment for scouting and searching.
I'm working to develop contacts with some Texas hunters that will let me tag along...
Those are nice, in my case I need my normal everyday glasses also ... those i would be afraid might distort my view if i put them on over my regular glasses ...I picked these up to wear while working on my cars, the Fl heat makes me sweat pretty hard and my normal glasses just would stay on. These were quite clear so I tried them at the range and couldn't believe how clear those sights were. For the price these are really hard to beat. I like them enough to keep a set with my nightstand pistol...
